earth pin three minutes before restarting the unit. If you restart
the air conditioner within three minutes, a protective
device in the unit may cause the compressor to shut off.
This protective device will prevent cooling for about 5
minutes. Any previous settings will be cancelled and the
unit will return to its initial settings.
• Low temperature operation: Is your unit freezing up?
Freezing may occur when the unit is set close to 18°C in
plug low ambient temperature conditions, especially at night.
In these conditions, a further temperature drop may
cause the unit to freeze. Setting the unit to a higher
temperature will prevent it from freezing.
• Dehumidification mode increases room temperature.
The unit generates heat during dehumidification mode
and the room temperature will rise. Warm air will be
blown out from the Exhaust air outlet, but this is normal
and does not indicate a problem with the unit.
• This air conditioner blows the warm air generated by
the unit outside the room via the exhaust hose while in
cool mode. Accordingly, the same amount of air as that
blown out will enter the room from outside through any
openings into the room.
